Question about U.S. Robotics (USR8054) Router

Usr8054 router losses connection

A few weeks ago my USR8054 router started loosing connectivity. It happes in a split second than the connectivity is usually restored. Sometimes it takes longer however. I did not change any settings and have most up-to-date firmware. Any ideas why would this start happening out of the blue??? Yes, I did try to unplug everything, and reconnect everything. Still happens. Changed even cables. If you plug the computers to the modem directly - no problem everything works! Any help would be great! Thanks

    could be a heat related issue. Does the router have plenty of air around it, especially near the vents?

What you can do to this problem is reflash the firmware of this router, then you need to reset the router by pressing the reset button for 15 seconds and after that reconfigure the settimgs of the router and observe if you still have the problem , hopefully that will fix the issue of your router...

    If you know how to access the router setup page, by typing its IP address on the address of your web browser like Internet Explorer or Firefox that will be good then download the firmware again and reflash it to the router....

Unable to connect to the internet with a new loptop.


is your wifi broadcasting non-secured signal? try protecting your wireless network with a password. In your case, it might be caused by incompatible protocol like 802.11 a/b/g and if your encryption method is incompatible with your router.

Setup your encryption to WAP not WAP2 in your router interface (http;//192.168.1.1) and configure your Vista to connect to your network using that encryption.

Having trouble with usr8054 wireless networking


Yes you should be fine. You have to configure the router before you can access the router, That should be covered in your manual. Also look for a button or switch on your computer that turn your wireless on and off. Make sure this is set to on.

Wireless doest not work (USR8054)


When you set your security, try using WEP personal as this is the most compatible with your things. Also, it is a good idea to put your computers on the network before you set your password.
